Being pregnant with Freddy was a breeze. I was in shock a bit at first as it seemed to happen really quickly, but the pregnancy itself was great. There was a guy at work that used to eat sour cream crisps every day, and that made me run to the loo and be sick, but other than that I sailed through the whole thing.
Right now I’m 5 months pregnant and it’s not been so easy. First off, this one was a total surprise. I was feeling pretty rough and thought I had a tummy bug. I went to the doctors and they did a blood test - that’s how I found out. It was such a shock, I just wondered how we were going to cope, and I felt really awful. My body ached, I was really tired all the time, and felt sick constantly. Loads of things set me off - perfume, shampoo, David’s aftershave - and he wouldn’t even stop wearing it! Food too - I was using this Body Coach cook book, and every recipe just made me sick. Especially chorizo. I could only manage bread, I ate loads of it. And dry food, that was it. I could hardly leave the house I was so bad from morning sickness.
